GOONEZE (LEVEL 3 -- TWEENS, TEENS & ADULTS -- VERY CHALLENGING)

Room capacity: 8 players  |  Minimum Number of Escape Game Players: 4  |  Time: 90 minutes | Cost: $35 per player

A thrilling Gooneze escape adventure.

THE GAME:

A heavy fog cloaked San Diego Harbor in 1859 when a square-rigged, three-mast, galley ship dropped anchor. The ship was captained by William Teach, a blood-thirsty pirate commonly known as One-Eyed Willy. Under cover of darkness, the ship lowered a small skiff carrying 3 sea-weary pirates and a cargo of treasure chests into the bay. The skiff made its way inland up the San Diego River and disappeared into a large underground cavern cut into the sandstone cliffs river bank.

A hundred years later, in the spring of 1958, a group of geologists from SDSU were researching earthquake faults and discovered the land under SDSU was riddled by a network of caverns which stretched from the college almost to the bay. They named the caverns “Nightwalker Caverns” after it was learned that a nighttime burglary ring used them as a hideout.

Later that year, a tour business found one of the entrances that the burglary ring had used to access the caverns and began advertising “cave tours” claiming that pirate treasure was hidden in the caverns. Tourists flocked to the caverns looking for "gold." The City grew tired of rescuing treasure hunters. Finally, after the disappearance of a man who claimed he had found One-Eyed Willy's treasure map, the City sealed the most easily accessible entrance to Nightwalker Caverns, and the land was eventually purchased by a developer. In 1962, an office building was built on the site. Locals in the area claim there is a hidden entrance to the caverns somewhere in the basement of the office building. Your adventure begins when your group finds an old map outside the basement door.

Don’t lose yourself or your friends while immersed in this Gooneze treasure hunt escape adventure game. You’ll need to keep your wits about you while crawling, sliding, and avoiding booby traps if you ever hope to find your way out of the caverns.

CLOWNATORIUM-2
UPSIDE DOWN
(Level 2 - THE MOST POPULAR ESCAPE ROOM GAME IN EAST SAN DIEGO COUNTY)

Room Capacity: 10 players  |  Minimum Number of Players: 4  |  Time: 90 minutes | Cost: $35 per player

THE GAME:

Thrills and chills are the theme in this "little bit scary and whole lot funny" adventure game. You believe your friend was kidnapped by the Nightwalker Clowns who live in the Upside Down Caverns located below an abandoned carnival on the edge of town. You'll wind your way through the carnival searching for the hidden entrance to the Upside Down – then your group must find and open the portal which will transport you back to the surface.

Remember, this is a Player controlled, level-of-difficulty room, which incorporates our theme of "a little bit scary and a whole lot funny."

The Players must decide whether or not to use clues. A live actor is in the room at all times to help if you need assistance to navigate your way through this funtastic escape adventure. Bring your sense of humor and be prepared for 90 minutes of sensory overload.

Clownatorium-2 Upside Down is not recommended for players under 12 as it is dark, and its subject matter may be too scary for younger players. Additionally, younger players cannot contribute anything to the game as the puzzles are designed with adult players in mind. Players under 18 need a person over 18 to remain on the premises.

TUT'S RUT

Room capacity 10 players  |  Minimum Number of Players: 4  |  Time: 90 minutes | Cost: $35 per player

​​​​This is not a scary escape room game, unless you are afraid of mummies and being trapped in a tomb.

THE GAME:

A spoof on tomb raider and mummy adventure movies where team escape game players are transported through a worm hole back in time 36,400 years to the Zep Tepi era when Gods possessing eternal life still ruled the planet.

Adventurers will have 90 minutes to locate concealed passageways, crawl through subterranean tunnels, and explore hidden rooms in search of the False Door, which is the threshold between the past and present and through which time traveling Adventurers can enter or exit.

This room is designed for experienced escape room gamers and is not suitable for younger players under 14 due to the complexity of the puzzles and skill level needed for escape. Persons under 18 must be accompanied by adults.

This is a LEVEL 3 (EXPERT ESCAPE ROOM PLAYER) puzzle oriented SPOOF.

TUT'S RUT REQUIRES A MINIMUM OF 4 ESCAPE ROOM PLAYERS

RULES OF PLAY:

All players must sign an Accident Waiver and Release of Liability form before entering the premises.

All bookings are private -- we do not mix groups. If you book for less than the maximum number, we block out the other spots. If you want to bring additional Players, they can pay at the door and sign in with your group.

Your escape room adventure begins with a live actor briefing to set the scene. You will then be led into the escape room and the clock begins to run. If you get stuck -- don't stress! We allow Players as many clues as they want and need. However, if you came with friends and didn't escape, perhaps you should select different friends to bring with you if you want to try another room. Let's face it -- all of us have "some friends" who are fun -- but totally clueless. On a more serious note, we want you to have a great time -- and we want you to escape! Our focus is for Players to have a lot of fun -- our games are not designed to stump the Players!! Plan on spending about 75 - 120 minutes from the time you enter our facility.

Please be sure to arrive a few minutes in advance of your time! We offer both on-street and FREE off-street parking. Also, be sure to finish any food or drinks you may have with you as they are not permitted inside the escape room. If you're having a birthday party, we will be happy to assist you setting up your party after the show.

You will not be permitted to bring purses, jackets, backpacks, cell phones, electronic devices or cameras inside the escape room. Photography or recording of any kind is forbidden by players until after the game is completed. For players who do bring personal items into the facility, we provide a cart where all items must be placed and the cart is brought into the room with the players. The cart is in full view of all players during the time the escape room experience is occurring. Unlike other escape room facilities, you may take photos after the show inside the rooms. Please feel free to post your photos on Instagram, Facebook, Trip Advisor, etc. -- and be sure to tag us!! We believe our rooms are the Best San Diego escape room adventures, so we want you to share your photos with the world!!

NOTE: If you are going to arrive late, you must call us to make sure that your late arrival will not interfere with the next show. If you cancel without notice or cannot make it on time, no refund is permitted. However, we will permit you to re-book for another date and time.

Further, we hope you won't need to leave the escape room for any reason prior to the expiration of the time for the escape. If you do, the game will proceed without you, but you can re-join the game provided the other Players agree. No additional time is added to the game if a Player decides to leave the game for any reason.

Nightwalker Caverns has installed night vision security cameras inside the escape rooms and party area. Security cameras are also located in the common areas outside the building. By entering, players agree to being photographed and/or videotaped.

As a final note, when you leave the facility, please do not spoil the fun or intrigue of the game for other players by revealing answers to puzzles and clues..
